In spite of extremely
hot weather and tricky track conditions it looked like the OSH-WW2
Racing team was back on track at the 2004 Night of Fire race
at Sacramento. Murphy qualified in the # 1 spot with a 6.08 and
set Low ET of the meet in the semi finals with a 5.853 @ 254.90
(new track record).
But in the final
round their lack of regular crew members and hectic pit work
cost them when an oil line wasn't tightened and the resulting
leak forced Murphy to shut the car off after the burnout and
watch Lee Jennings Sr. make a single for the win.
